Thanksgiving Eve & The First Snow

Well, I knew it was coming.  Winter that is.  At least my amazing sister-in-law had the foresight to send us some snow shovels and ice scrapers this week because it has been snowing all day long.  Apparently, Worcester is going to get somewhere around 5 inches of snow before it stops.  I tried to prepare for the storm by going to the grocery store to stock up on necessities, I got gas, and basically I felt as though I were prepping for Y2K all over again.  How am I going to get through the next six months?!?!

It was actually not a bad day to stay inside because I had a lot of baking to do for our Thanksgiving dinner plans tomorrow.  That is, of course, assuming Ryan and I actually make it there since it requires driving, ya know, in the snow.  Josh is on nights this whole week.  So he'll be getting off work tomorrow morning, sleeping all day, and heading back in to work around 5:30pm tomorrow night.  AKA: he will be missing Thanksgiving dinner.  Doctor life really stinks sometimes.  And he was especially thrilled that he had to shovel snow from behind the car in order to leave this evening.

Eventually, I decided that Ryan and I should at least venture outside for a few minutes since it was the first snowfall of the year and the first time Ryan would actually get to see snow.  She thought the snow was pretty interesting, especially since she could eat it!

I hope that everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday tomorrow with friends and family.  Happy Thanksgiving!
